Protesters confront Rove at American University

From the AP via the Houston Chronicle:

White House adviser Karl Rove was confronted by more than a dozen protesters who blocked his car and threw things as he tried to leave a speaking engagement at American University, officials said.

This really cracks me up. I mean, Cheny and Bush have been enduring some pretty heavy protests for at least a couple of years now, but Rove, a.k.a. "Bush's Brain," doesn't really get out enough to be a target for this kind of thing. But, man, he really deserves it. All those neo-cons were definitely a major factor behind our Middle Eastern wars, but at least they have some sort of pro-American rationale behind their scheming, however misguided it may be. Rove, on the other hand, who may be just as responsible as the neo-cons for getting us into Iraq and Afghanistan, did it solely for the purpose of making Bush a "war President." That is, he's just fine with killing tens of thousands of Muslims, and thousands of US service men and women, in order to increase his boy's domestic power. And that's pretty fucking sick, if you ask me.

This doesn't even begin to get into Rove's bread-and-butter tactic of smearing political opponents rather than actually debating them. Yep, he definitely deserves to have things thrown at him.

Here's another reason to throw things at him.
